Not every state has commercial plates.

They may not call them commercial tags but they charge for them.


Any truck over 10,000 pounds gets to pay a commercial fee just like NC. I might also add that the fee for trailers in MD is absurd. My 7,000# trailer in MD would be $160 every two years. Here in NC it's like $20 yearly or something like that.

Hey TLS- Remember this is Maryland, state motto, "if you can dream it, we can tax it". Never register a truck over 10,000 lbs. Never register a trailer over 10,000 lbs. Never pull a combo registered over 20,000lbs. Puts a bullseye right on your backside, saying pull me over and give me s**t. Never stop at scalehouses, go around. Overweight tickets are cheaper than all the hassles from DOT and the state police.:hammerhead: :hammerhead:
